Saturday ia the greatest of market?

everywhere else, and the scenes about
Salem avenue market yesterday wer??
unusually animated. At this season
the markets are at their very best.
The Ricinus watermelon has arrived,
all the berries are there in the greatest
profusion and at prices within the
reach of everybody, and vegetables
are much cheaper ih iu Roanoke dirt.
So the housewife is correspondingly
happy and has more than the u*???al
amount of piu money at lier di
posal.
The old market house is not the
most inviting place in the world when
deserted. The odors that hangabout
its dingy comers smack not 01 those
from Araby, but in the morning the
bright faces of Itoauoke's pretty girls
brighten the building up wont lei f ally,

looks so pretty as she does in the
morning, and even a plain girl, fm- the
time, becomes almost handsome in
her simple morning toilet. Here are
some notes picked up about the
stands.

The features were the work of bot'
batteries and the fielding of Sander
son, who, though he looked like a
tanner, played like a professional.
Play was called about 4.20, with
the Bedford City team at the bat.
Boothe made a short hit. which was
thrown wild to first, be going to sec?
ond, reaching third on Sanderson's
scratch hit. Dame came (next and
knocked a long fly to Sproul, which
wa- fie!.led nicely. I). Aunspaugh
got to first on a scratcli bit and Boothe
scored. Wigmore, Welch and Brodic
crossed the home plate in this inning
for t he Roanoke'*.
In the second inning both .-ides were
retired in one, two. three order.
In the third, Bedford City got an?
other man across] tho plate, the
Roanokes being letired a- in the pre?
vious inning.
The visitors failed to score in the
fourth. Sands caught t lie ball with
his bat, and sent it over the ground as
if tired from the mouth of a. cannon.
It passed nil the fielders, and was only
stopped by striking the centre field
fence, Sands crossing the plate before
it could lie returned. A. Brodic and
Klrby were stopped at first, and Reil
ley fouled out.
Another run was tallied for the vis?
iting team in the fifth. Booth died
at first, Sanderson struck out. Dame
hit the ball for two bases, ami reached
home fin W Aunspaugh's hit to the

meeting, adjourned subject to the call
of tho secretary. Mr. J. Taylor Elly

result of that consultaaion. The
members of the committee are united
in expressing the desire that the cam

ticable. This view is urged, among
others, by sonic in tho First Con?
gressional district. They say that it
is desirable that the committee shall
meet at as early a day as practicable,
in order that the district committees
may meet and assemble a convention
to nominate a representative. The
Democrats expect to make a determ?

A movement for establishing our
hospital upon a philanthropic basis
deserves a general commendation.
The present elTort has tho potency
and promise of success. With tho
TIMES, I believe the present public
spirited movement "will undoubtedly
be successful.",
More than two years uqo, some of
us met and considered the hospital
claim. A committe was appointed
and here the .matter ended. Within
the past year the questii n was brought
before the city fa! hers and discussed
at some length in the papers, but the
proposal for raising the money by
taxation was rejected by a popular
vote. Not having discussed the
municipal plan, though requested
to do so, 1 beg leave to express now
my profound appreciation of the gen?
eral aspects of the hospital claim, and
to add my unsolicited commendation
of the present movement. It is con?
fessedly philanthropic, and is .-vi
dently free fn>n\ certain object ionable
features fatal to the municipal plan.
There i- ho occasion to present tb?
needs and inestimable benefits of a
city hospital, for none appreciate
these points better than tin.- large
hearted and liberal minded citizens
who will provide ih.- financial sup?
port for ilii.- benevolent enterprise.
No flatteringapp -I to tender sympa?
thies of the general public is de?
manded. The benefit of a firat
?i, well-ordered city hospital*is
understood by the public, and tin
funds for it- substantial endowment
ire in the hands of those who appre
mite the importance of the work. We
may conclude that the enterprise is
now an assured fact. The money
raised already is a guarantee of finan
i il and moral sup-port.
As a. people, however, we should ap?
preciate and encourage the philan?
thropic spirit which characterizes the
present movement. The fund will be
ecured, the hospital will be built and
the. sick and wounded will have all
that professional skdl and personal
ministry can render, and it simply n -
mains for us to sink our person;.1
and selfish preferences beneath
the higher claims ol a public
II beisPirite?'. Pjittanthrjpio movement
1 ttie establishment of a city hospital
upon a purely philanthropic bar's
will bind our citizens of every condi?
tion together in a common service,
and no boue cf contention will be left
for either municipal or denomina?
tional factions The liberal subscri?
bers who feel enough interest to pro
vide the means, will consider care?
fully and wisely the practical details
of organization and adaptation, and
current contributions will meet emer?
gencies.
While at Vale College I noticed
with especial interest the generous
rivalry of the New Haven churches
in raising their annual contributions
on ''Hospital Day." The church I
attended took the lead with an
average of nearly two thousand
dollars. The TIMES is right in sug?
gesting that tlie ladies and churches'
can come to the rescue if anything is
lacking, and there can be no lack
when the philanthropic spirit pre?
vails. There will he no delicate mu?
nicipal or denominational issues. The
present hospital movement is a golden
opportunity for binding till of our
people together more closely in cue
grand, good work.
May the present movement meet
with abundant success. J. E. B.
